Many of our clients exhibit complex behaviours related to their developmental disability; so when it comes to providing effective disability services, we really want to get to know those we serve.
Behavioural consultations allow us to observe and assess a client’s behaviour. Identifying patterns and understanding the client’s triggers will help our behaviour specialists to develop a wellness support plan for that individual. By building daily routines that centre around what each of our client’s positively respond to, such as activities and preferences, we effectively reduce unwanted behaviours.
With each new client, an Entrust behaviour specialist will conduct a thorough consultation. Time is spent with the client and other stakeholders in the client’s life, like parents, caregivers, teachers and other school staff.
Our team is passionate about providing customized and highly personalized care to our clients, and in order to do that we need really need to get ot know our clients. We can provide this service both in-person in our Edmonton office or out-of-region via conference.
